Construction Project Manager
I am an engineer who manages construction projects at NASA to ensure safety for test launches.
Day to Day
I participate in contractor oversight and management of design and construction activities in the test complex with a focus on B2 Test Stand Revitalization projects in support of Space Launch System (SLS) testing. I ensure design and construction contract requirements are met during the construction process and update affected drawings and documentation at the end of the construction project.
Skills & Qualities Beyond School
Be patient with yourself. Science is hard and it takes time and requires you to prioritize it, which isn't always realistic at points in your life. Ultimately, this career field is not a race against anyone but yourself. Be determined, focused, and a good listener.
